While most of the new groups struggled during the Corona pandemic, GAUPA managed to grow through quality. Their unique sound did not go unnoticed and word of mouth quickly spread. Once we saw their show live and had a few videoconferences we knew they would fit well into an artist roster containing artists like Graveyard, Opeth, Earthless and Meshuggah who seem to be some of theirs. favorite bands, even if GAUPA is not very metal at all. But it’s that attitude to break down the boundaries between genres – just for the love of the art. We are proud to welcome them in good company.
